Statues along the Singapore River of old Chinese traders counting the sacks of food

From Chettiar to Financier : Chern Lian Shan Sculptor Singapore’s position as a center for trade led to the proliferation of financial institutions. The settlement’s first bank was the Union Bank of Calcutta established in 1846. Financial businesses set up their offices near the Singapore River to be close the the area’s many trading houses. Early services were always along ethnic lines. The money lending in the early days was primarily run by the Chettiars who came from South India. The Chettiars congregated at Market and Chulia Streets, and their offices were easy to spot. These usually comprised a clerk and a manager who sat behind a small low desk on a woven mat, as shown here. Clearing houses were the domain of the Chinese. . Clerks, like this standing pig-tailed man, were a common sight as they bustled to and from offices in Commercial Square (Raffles Place). Today major local and multinational financial institutions provided a wealth of sophisticated financial services. On the trading floor of the Singapore Exchange almost every day, are hundreds of traders, whose distinctive jackets have become the symbol of economic growth.

Over to all of you to join the challenge with your own Count post.

Rounded

Ben Huberman over at WordPress invites us this week to  share our take on “rounded.”  which is a broad theme, he is looking forward to our personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.
